It happened. Your Bare Republic color sunscreen was great for pictures and reminding you to apply it, but then you went swimming too soon after application and forgot to reapply every few hours. An eight hour day by the pool later and you look like a lobster. Not even a lobster, a teenage lobster because on top of everything else, you’ve got blisters popping up. If you find yourself living as an adolescent crustacean, here’s how to heal and soothe the blisters with by using some CUROXEN Original. You should also try not to move too much.
If you have fair skin and have never visited planet Earth before, here’s a rundown of what is happening to your body. UV rays emitted from our sun (that big yellow thing that we always stick in the corner on drawings) crash down onto the planet and hit our skin. Our bodies then get into gear to try and fight the harmful sun rays, usually resulting in a temporary darkened color (we call it a tan and are obsessed with them). However, if your body is fighting off too much sun, the skin can’t handle it and instead creates enlarged capillaries and sends extra blood cells to the area. The reaction then results in painful red skin that lasts for an average of several days.
Unfortunately, sometimes sunburns get so bad that they blister, causing you even more pain. When someone experiences a second-degree sunburn, the damage that affects deeper parts of the skin causes a blister that typically appears within 24 hours.
How to treat
- First things first LEAVE THEM ALONE! Don’t pick them or try to pop the pus out (I mean gross). The ensuing result could lead to major infections and prolong healing.
- Keep it germ-free and soothe the pain by applying CUROXEN’s original all-natural and organic formula which kills 5X more germs than any other first aid ointment on the market.
- Avoid exacerbating the issue by staying indoors and out of the sun. If you do need to be out, cover the area with loose-fitting clothing if possible and slather on as much Coola Bare Republic sunscreen as possible.
Once you’re all healed, make sure to take precautions the next time you’ll be outside. UV rays can affect you at any time of year, even when it’s cloudy. Remember that any coloring- whether it’s that perfect bronze or just a “base tan”- is a sign of damage to your skin that can lead to cancer down the line. Always make sure to wear sunscreen with a medium to high SPF, cover where you can, and stay out of the sun as much as possible.
*You should seek medical attention if blisters are covering a large portion of your body, your experience high fever with aches and pains, if the sunburn becomes infected, and if the above treatment does not yield results.
